Family Rating: ★★★★☆

We had a lovely family Christmas meal today at the lodge £12 for a 3 course meal, service was good and the food very nice.
There was lots of choice, we had a drink at the bar first and we even had time for a coffee before school runs.

My wife and I got married in Orlando and was looking to celebrate our marriage when we got home with a UK reception. When managed to find The Lodge Country Inn with it’s marquee and knew straight away that this was the place.

We booked earlier in the year and around the summer we were called in to go through our reception in more detail. We met the new wedding planner, Jayne and were told of the renovations that were about to happen.

A lovely cream carpet was fitted, bar was revamped and an LED dance floor was installed.

What can we say, this took the venue to a completely new level and the venue and staff completely exceeded our expectations.

We were blown away with the service, food and each and every staff member from the moment we booked until the moment we left.

All our guests were complimenting on how good the food was!

Thank you everyone who was involved in helping us extend our celebrations with a fantastic evening!

Wow , what a great weekend .

We could not have had a better time from the moment we arrived until we left on Sunday afternoon ,everything was perfect.

The stunning upgraded marquee and the professional friendly staff made for a superb wedding that run perfectly with a lovely Bbq during the day and a fantastic Buffett in the evening.

The Dj was great fun and we loved the New Led illuminated dance-floor.

We stayed in room 1 , which was bright airy and clean.

Breakfast was fine and Sunday Lunch first class.

Prices are great value for money and the staff were very happy & friendly.

Thank you everyone at the Lodge – we will be back asap.

Stayed here many times in the past and will continue to do so whilst we still have family to visit in Essex. Breakfast very nice Chris cooks us up an amazing start to our day and Lauren always cheerful and attentive. Day before we did have a problem with service on breakfast but resolved after a few nudges with a staff member not sure of her name. Dinner is always lovely with lots of choice and very good value for money. We did have a smaller room this time but it was short notice booking as we were attending a family funeral. My personal taste would be a firmer bed as it was a bit too soft for my not so good back other than that no problem. We are returning again later in the year on a happier occasion so looking forward to it. Local to battlesbridge which if you have never been is full of antique shops something for everyone, and about half an hours drive in to Southend on sea where you can let your hair down. Thanks Angela for another lovely stay.
